Galway: Type 2 Diabetes Roundtable Workshop
April 27, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm5.00€
Have you ever wanted to sit face to face with the diabetes experts outside of a hospital setting to learn more about your condition? Diabetes Ireland is delighted to offer you this opportunity. In partnership with Novartis, we have gathered four experts from a variety of fields in the area of Type 2 diabetes to answer YOUR questions. To do this, join us in The Connacht Hotel, Dublin Road, Galway on Wednesday 27th of April 2016 from 7-9pm.
On the night, each speaker will give a 5 minute introduction on their topic. Following this, you and fellow attendees will be divided into small groups (no more than 12) at a round discussion table. Our experts will move from table to table in rotation for a 15 minute Q&A sessions. This should allow for easy conversation and give you the opportunity to ask them anything you like about your diabetes, or just listen.
The experts and their topics are:
• “Good Eye Health & the Diabetic Retina Screen Service”
Dr Deirdre Townley, Consultant Ophthalmologist, University Hospital Galway
• “Carbohydrates and how to control blood glucose. What do I need to know?”
Ms Pauline Dunne, Senior Dietitian, Diabetes Ireland
• “Understanding my numbers; why blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels are so important”
Ms Clair Naughton, Diabetes Nurse Specialist, Diabetes Ireland
• “Tips for self-management of your feet”
Mr David Watterson, Podiatry Clinical Manager, Merlin Park Hospital, Galway
